Vie Magazine did a FANTASTIC article on Klear Kanoo last month. Here are some excerpts from…

I CAN SEE CLEARLY NOW

by Amanda Crowley

 

Madriaga is a broker and realtor with ResortQuest Real Estate based in Miramar Beach, Florida, when she’s not wearing her entrepreneurial hat and promoting the Klear Kanoo. She relates that over the past few years, countless hours have been invested to improve upon the original model, making a great idea even better. The new Kanoo has a “much better shape and is better for waves,” Madriaga says. “The new designs are also easy to get in and out of, making them perfect for people of all ages to use. We like to say, ‘Any age, any skill level can Kanoo!’”

Weighing in at an incredibly light thirty-nine pounds, the Klear Kanoo is easy to transport and made of a high-tech polycarbonate. This incredibly durable high-impact polymer is also used in the production of bulletproof glass and fighter jet canopies, and the practically indestructible material can go from extremely low to high temperatures without any worries. The material won’t yellow and does not heat up in the sun like other plastics can, making for a comfortable ride for paddlers in any climate.

 

“The popularity of the boats is growing quickly,” Madriaga says. “I’ve seen the Kanoos locally in Northwest Florida at Crab Island and all over the area in rivers, in springs, in the bay, and at the beach.” It’s easy to envision the success of such an idea in and around coastal towns, but Klear Kanoo has expanded and is now selling across the country. Kanoos have been shipped all over—from South Florida to California—to excited clients who are ready to discover a new view of their favorite aquatic locations.

Klear Kanoos can be shipped to anywhere in the United States, but Madriaga delivers locally for free from the warehouse located in Miramar Beach. “We deliver in the Klear Kanoo Mobile, with a big bow on the boat,” she says. “It’s a great gift the whole family can enjoy.” Each boat purchase comes with suction cup drink holders and Klear Kanoo T-shirts and hats as exclusive bonus gifts for owners. Many owners of beach rental homes or condos are buying Klear Kanoos and offering them as amenities for their guests. Beach rental companies are also beginning to offer rentals of the boats.

“Riding in a Kanoo is a beautiful experience—like scuba diving, but without the tank or the wetsuit,” Madriaga expounds. “It’s amazing to experience the water under and around you. This isn’t a glass-bottom boat; the entire boat is clear! We see turtles, fish, and jellyfish often, but even just seeing the Gulf floor is incredibly cool.”

The Kanoos can be modified for fishing enthusiasts by attaching rod holders, providing the ultimate fishing experience: seeing the catch before you reel it in! Additionally, a Klear Kanoo comes with two seats, but Madriaga found a way to modify the boats to accommodate a single rider by making them removable. “Though,” she adds, “if you leave it with two, there’s a seat for your cooler. A day on the water wouldn’t be complete without a cooler of snacks!”

For Madriaga, the excitement lies just as much on land as at sea. “I love my job, seeing people so happy and having fun,” she says. “It’s great watching how excited people are when the Klear Kanoo Mobile drives up and we take the boats out on the water.” Introducing clients to the product and answering questions about the boats are added bonuses for both Madriaga and the customers when they get local delivery. “We are a business, but we also provide a service and love to make people happy. We’ve become friends with all of our clients and love to get pictures, videos, and comments on how much people love their boats!” Madriaga posts them on the company Facebook page and website.

“I bought my Klear Kanoo a year ago. It’s been one of my best purchases ever,” says Mike Reynolds of Milton, Florida. “It’s opened up a whole new adventure that we are not able to see from on top of the water. Just one outing in the Klear Kanoo and you’re hooked. Not to mention all the attention it gets from people who see it; no one can simply walk by without taking a look at it.”

Clear Canoe in the Gulf Adventure! Klear Kanoo

Clear Canoe

We packed up the Clear Canoe (Spelled Klear Kanoo) and headed for the Gulf of Mexico on a perfect beach day! The wind was mild and coming from a Northerly direction resulting in flat, calm waters! We unloaded as many admirers oohed, ahhed with their eyes glued on our Kanoo. We walked along the sand to the shore. We smiled back as our excitement grew as we neared the shore. The Gulf was a fantastic aqua blue and as soon as we set the boat in the water, we knew we were in for a real treat! With our gear, cooler and ourselves in the boat, we paddled off. The Turquoise color surrounded us entirely. Below, we could see the ocean floor. It felt like we were magically floating on the water with a clear view of the world below. We caught our first glimpse of sea life below the boat. A large school of fish danced as they swam underfoot. With nothing to impede our view, it was like Scuba Diving but without the tanks, equipment and masks! Onlookers pointed and gave us the thumbs up as we passed. I know they thought the boat was cool but there was no way they knew just how cool paddling in this boat is! We sat in our hard formed seats with back support and armrests comfortable as can be! We saw fish and jellyfish. We had hoped to see a turtle or dolphin but really, just floating along in our Klear Kanoo on that perfect day was enough!

These Kanoo’s are perfect for all ages and all skill levels. Anyone can Kanoo! Especially with the formed seats with back support!

They are a great gift for the family! Give the gift of a Kanoo! Visit www.KlearKanoo.com or call 850-598-0454 to order yours today! We deliver free locally and can ship anywhere in the USA for $300.

Econfina Springs in a Clear Canoe (Klear Kanoo)

We loaded up our Clear Canoes, spelled..Klear Kanoos on our truck Sunday morning. The weather was perfect. 90 degrees with puffy clouds in the sky. A slight cool breeze was the only sign that Fall is coming. On our way, we received alot of happy waves and surprised, pointing fingers from cars that pass us on way. People smile and waive or give us the “thumbs up” because they like the boats. “I’ve never seen anything like it” or “those are so cool, where can I get one?” we’re asked at stop lights. We smile back. So glad that the Kanoos make people happy!

We arrived at the Econfina Springs Canoe Drop area, carried the boats down to the staging dock and the adventure was on! We took a picnic lunch, some fishing poles and paddled off.

The beauty of nature surrounded us. The canopy of trees with rays of sunlight shined through as we drifted on cool water as we were carried along in a smooth, flowing current. Below and around us, nothing to impede the view. It was like literally ‘sitting on water’.

We sit in these totally clear canoes. We had been in them many times before on our many Klear Kanoo adventures, but we were both even more proud of them today. Their performance on the river was impressive.

The current was smooth and moving at a moderate speed. There were fallen trees that would come up pretty quickly and the Klear Kanoos maneuvered quite impressively. They take waves and cut through water with the V-shaped bow then flatten to a 3 ft wide, flat bottom that lends terrific stability!  We were able to steer easily and make controlled stops and turns!

All the while, we sit. Completely surrounded by water. Underneath, on the sides, there is nothing to impede our view. We see river floor as we glide along. Fish swim underfoot. We can even see tree limbs that would be unseen, under the water.

Awed by the beauty, we paddle along. Then, in the distance, we see it. Spring water. The clearest, cleanest most beautiful water you ever want to see. It turns from a light tea color to a luminescent green-blue. Breathtaking. It totally surrounded us. Below, around, in front, back. We were floating on this incredible water. It was like a dream. So glad we were on a Klear Kanoo (Clear Canoe)!
